For your safety, after the expiration of the one-year warranty, have any needed adjustments made by a qualified specialist. The door springs are under a considerable amount of tension and require special tools and knowledge for accurate and safe servicing. Have the door inspected by a professional garage door technician after any significant impact to the door.
Century Communities Limited Warranty Guidelines The garage door should operate smoothly and with reasonable ease. The door can become misaligned and require adjustment, which will be corrected unless the problem is caused by the installation of a garage door opener not installed by us.
GRADING AND DRAINAGE
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines The final grades around your home have been inspected and approved for proper drainage of your lot. Our local building authorities inspect the grades of the yard to make sure they comply with the approved drainage plan. Yards drain from one to another. You and your neighbors share an overall drainage plan for the community. Use caution when installing landscaping, fencing or additions to your home to prevent causing water problems on adjacent lots. Drainage The final grade of your yard has been designed to provide a positive flow of water away from the foundation of your home. Maintain the slopes around your home to permit the water to drain away from the home as rapidly as possible. This is essential to protect your foundation. Failure to do so can result in major structural damage and will void your warranty. Exterior Finish Materials Maintain the top of the grass to six inches below siding, stucco, brick or other exterior finish materials. Contact with the soil can cause deterioration of the exterior finish material and encourages pest infestations. Roof Water Do not remove the splash blocks or downspout extensions from under the downspouts. Keep these in place at all times, sloped so the water drains away from your home quickly. Settling The area we excavated for your home’s foundation was larger than the home to allow room to work. In addition, some trenching is necessary for installation of utility lines. Although we replaced and compacted the soil, it does not return to its original density. Some settling will occur, especially after prolonged or heavy rainfall or melting of large amounts of snow. Settling can continue for several years. Inspect the perimeter of your home regularly for signs of settling and fill settled areas as needed to maintain positive drainage.
